“It’s a rare and joyous thing to see a stand up so vibrant and imperiously on top of his game” ★★★★★ Mark Wareham, Mail on Sunday
“the greatest British Asian comedian of all time” Asjad Nazir, Eastern Eye
“It has seemed to happen without many people noticing, but Paul Chowdhry has become something of a big deal…you never get the sense that he’s selling out his background for cheap laughs, more that Chowdhry’s an equal-opportunity piss-taker…It’s an angle of attack that’s more common among US comics and Chowdhry does this stuff as slickly and effectively as anyone on the other side of the Atlantic.” James Kettle, The Guardian
“Chowdhry’s laconic delivery and equal-opportunity observational comedy find him mocking almost every ethnic group, without resorting to tired cliché” Stephen Armstrong, The Sunday Times
Comedy powerhouse Paul Chowdhry has announced his stand-up special Live innit will be available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in 200 countries and territories worldwide on 19th August.
Paul’s brand new special is based on his hugely successful show Live innit, which had a thrice extended nationwide tour, including five nights at the Hammersmith Apollo and a sold out show at Wembley Arena in which Paul performed to a 10,000 strong audience.
As an actor, he is set to star in a leading role in a new international TV series Devils produced by Sky Italia alongside Patrick Dempsey. Online, Paul is also a prolific presence on social media, and his videos have been viewed over 35 million times on Facebook. On TV, Paul hosted Stand Up for the Week (Channel 4), and has twice headlined Live at the Apollo (BBC One/Two). He was a much loved contestant on the third series of Dave’s multi-award nominated hit show Taskmaster, presented by Greg Davies and Alex Horne, and featuring guests including Frank Skinner, Al Murray, Katherine Ryan, Noel Fielding, and Mel Giedroyc. Paul appeared four times on Channel 4’s Comedy Gala, alongside comics including Lee Evans and Michael McIntyre, and has also regularly appeared on shows such as 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4), and Very British Problems (Channel 4).
This special comes off the back of an already successful year with Paul winning the Comedy award at the Eastern Eye’s Arts, Culture & Theatre Awards 2019, Comedian of the Year award at the Asian Voice Political & Public Life Awards 2019 and being nominated for Entertainer of the Year by the British Asian Awards 2019. His latest show Live innit – which comprised of 150 sold out dates including Australia and New Zealand – also won Best Live Event 2018 at the ITV Asian Media Awards.
